Frank Mason


I took this picture at the SVAC exhibition. The woman in the painting also studied with Frank at the same time that Jack and I studied. It is a beautiful painting with dazzling brushwork, yet the most sensitive and subtle nuances. The model and her husband were at the opening, and it was wonderful to see how a beautiful portrait captures the underlying essence of the person. Although, many years had passed since Frank painted this, the model was instantly recognizable, older, but still lovely.
